This report provides an outline of trends, themes and patterns based on an intensive six month period of research into child sexual exploitation. It acknowledges the challenges faced by agencies working with victims of child sexual abuse, but also identifies serious weaknesses and makes recommendations to improve practice in safeguarding victims and improving criminal justice outcomes.
The aim is to improve the depth of understanding among police forces, children's services, local safeguarding children boards (LSCBs) and service providers. CEOP is committed to working with these agencies and stakeholders to ensure that the findings and recommendations or this thematic assessment are understood, implemented and followed.
